News Regarding Sewer Lateral in Oakland

EPA and EBMUD have agreed that the Private Sewer Lateral Inspection Program will begin in Oakland on January 16, 2012. The Private Sewer Lateral Inspection Program requires that sewers leading from buildings to City sewer mains be inspected, repaired and reinspected if necessary, and that a Compliance Certificate confirming that the laterals are leak free be obtained from EBMUD when: 1. The property is sold; 2. The size of the water meter is changed; or 3. Remodeling costing more than $100,000 takes place. All three “triggers” will become effective on January 16, 2012, for properties within the City of Oakland. EBMUD will be in touch with you as part of their outreach to the realtor community.
